Handmade portrait of Francisco Carregal — a black worker on the textile line in Bangu, who played the game so well that the factory bosses invited him onto their team in 1905. The first black to play professional soccer in Brazil, Carregal paved the way for Brazil’s poor to dominate the game over the next decades.

This is portrait of legendary Afonsinho. It’s made out of real hair. This is why: "Afonsinho’s wild, flowing beard was dubbed a sign of dangerous nonconformity by authorities—there were even attempts to censor photos of him so that people wouldn’t see his hair and be inspired to rebel."

This was an incredible week for my personal project James Harden Illustrated.
It was featured in and applauded by some of the biggest names on the planet like ESPN, USA Today, Fast Co Design, Taxi Design, Creators Project, Sports Illustrated, Slate, NBA.com and many more.


"It’s important to note that Peraić isn’t just some random Tumblr weirdo: A graduate of Zagreb’s School of Design, he has done work for major brands such as IBM, Mercedes Benz, ESPN, and more. It’s undeniably a fun project, but what sunflowers were to Van Gogh, Harden’s leonine profile is to Peraić. Out of constraint—and Harden’s magnificent beard folds—can come great design."
